College Park -- Brandon Bullock, a former Maryland stu- dent, said Terps backup quarterback Josh Portis copied off his paper during a pop quiz in the spring semester - an incident that led to the program's fastest and most-hyped quarterback being declared ineligible for the 2007 season.

The class was American Studies 212 - Diversity in America, Bullock said Tuesday, and the quiz involved about 10 short-answer questions based on films and readings from previous classes.
